|The Brent reservoir, or
'Welsh Harp' as it is more commonly known, is situated on the borders of the
London boroughs of Brent and Barnet. The site is frequently considered for
development, and the need for a body dedicated to preserving its current status
as a SSSI and an important breeding site for wildfowl has been demonstrated
with alarming frequency.
The Welsh Harp Conservation Group (WHCG) was formed in 1972, and works in close liaison with both Brent and Barnet councils. It was formed to protect the area, not only as a habitat for a variety of birdlife and rare species of flora, but in the interests of public recreation.
The aim of this Website is to publicise the existence of the Welsh Harp, bring updates and news to existing patrons and allow general discussion on any birding issues. I hope that you find your visit worthwhile.
